Many of the healthcare workers who are fighting on the front lines to save our loved ones will tell you 'I was just doing my job, I'm no hero' but us common folk who don't have that type of responsibility will tell you otherwise. To us - they are hero's!
Many thanks to all of you (including my daughters) who work in the healthcare industry - we salute you!

So here we all are on the 21st of March, quarantined to our homes. While I am quite disturbed by the crisis going on in America and around the world, I don't mind spending the day in my craft room. Social distancing just gives me an excuse to spend the day by myself. :)
I used some photos I took while on vacation and turned them into sketches for ya'll to color. My good friend Debbie shouted the idea and I ran with it!
So the question of the day is... cabin or beach? Which do you dream of?
Free download below.
Color and let me see what you come up with!

In an effort to connect with others during this time of 'social distancing' - I offered a challenge via social media.
"I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU:
I created the picture below using clipart (royalty free clipart) and that’s because I have zero ability to draw.
Challenge: If you have the talent to draw and you think you can create a better picture than I did - I challenge you to do so. If you send me a VERY CLEAN jpg of your drawing, I will offer it as a free printable download so others can enjoy bringing it to life with color. #quarantinegift
NOTE: The drawing must be yours. Draw anything you want - just keep it black and white so others can color it. And keep it clean people... 😂
I am desperately trying to get my step father Dave Iannuzzi to draw for me but it’s becoming quite the effort to keep begging. So I am reaching out to all ya’ll for help so I can continue giving away my free printables while we’re all stuck inside.
No stamped images are allowed because they are all copyrighted by the company who made the stamp. 😮
Message me if you want to take on the challenge!"
Guess what??? One of my awesome friends from Connecticut - messaged me with an AWESOME picture that she would like to contribute to my continued efforts to offer free coloring printables! I am so excited that someone wants to take part with me!
Lena (Olena Zabolotska) is an amazingly talented artist. She is one of those beautiful humans from the inside out, who can create art out of anything at all. When we were neighbors, she collected rocks from our beach and made adorable figurine animals from the rocks. She also painted a wood sailboat scene on driftwood and gave it to us as a going away gift. It still sits on our mantle today. Anyway, this wonderfully talented woman thinks the idea of sharing something that might help someone else - is a good idea. She is offering her first piece of art here, for you to download for free.
Thank you LENA!!!
Today I mailed out 32 quarantine gifts. I printed the free downloads and sent them with blank greeting cards and envelopes. The amount of anxiety I feel, like so many others, is more than my brain can comprehend right now and I heard that if you do something for someone else or find a way to give back during times of need - it reduces that stress. It worked. It made me happy to put those 32 envelopes in the mail. It doesn't change what's going on around me, but it allowed me time to decompress for a minute and think about what's really important to me - and that is and has always been - making people smile. Hope these gifts bring many smiles.
With the happy mail that was put in my outgoing box, I slipped a thank you card for my postal carrier. Told her that although I can't go out and visit anyone - the ability to mail gifts has brought me joy and I couldn't do that without her. Hoping it made her smile too!
Here is today's FREE quarantine download. Enjoy! (and share your pics! I want to see!!)
